Least Favourite Character!

Over the years there have been discussions here on people's favourite books and characters in the twelve, I'm about half-way through PP at the moment and it occurred to me that I have strong negative feelings about some of the characters!

It would be interesting to know which of any of the characters people have a disliking for, but... to stop it becoming like a Facebook or Twitter style poll you need to explain why.

By 'character' I mean any of the Ss, As, Ds etc or the related adults who have a major part in the novels - such as Peter Duck.

This, of course, has been prompted by my own thoughts on a particular character, so time for me to 'come clean' as it were.

Mine is Roger, reiterated for me by reading PP. His antics (such as when they are all attempting to dowse) are just plain irritating, and sometimes I'm surprised nobody bluntly and directly tells him so (though he does get some chastisement for it.)

Compare this to the description of Titty's attempts at dowsing, for me it shows where AR's strengths as a writer can be found.
